Computerized Investing-Related Guides
For subscribers of Computerized Investing, there are two Investor Guides devoted exclusively to you (they are designated by the dollar signs next to their links): the Computerized Investing Guidebook and the Computer Hardware Guide. The Computerized Investing Guidebook organizes recent product comparisons into a central reference source. Instead of having to comb the Web site for comparison articles of investment-related Web sites and software packages, visitors will find these articles grouped together in one location. The areas of investment-related services include portfolio management, fundamental stock analysis, technical analysis, mutual fund screening and analysis, and comprehensive investment-related Web sites. In addition, the most recent On-Line Discount Brokers list and Top Web Sites Guide are found here. The Computerized Investing Guidebook also has a section on setting up an investment plan and making investment decisions.
With new technologies constantly coming on the market, it can be confusing to decide what kind of computer system is best suited for your individual computing needs. The Computer Hardware Guide, which is updated on an annual basis, helps readers to define their computing needs and then walks them through the various topics that need to be addressed when shopping for a new or replacement computer—the latest in processors, types of data storage devices, monitors, printers, and security issues. The guide then brings it all together as the editors of Computerized Investing make their recommendations on computer configurations suited to the typical individual investor.
